Sponsored by Businesswire

8×8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), a leading
cloud provider of voice, video, chat and contact center solutions for
over one million users worldwide, today announced that Channel
has selected John DeLozier, 8×8 Channel Chief, as a winner
of the 2019 Circle of Excellence Awards.

This is the third time DeLozier has received this honor — he is a
seasoned channel leader with more than 20 years of experience in
business management, sales and channel development.

“I’m excited to once again be named to the Channel Partners Circle of
Excellence,” said DeLozier. “My charter this year is to further develop
and execute 8×8’s channel program as it continues to grow with a
commitment to making it easier and faster for partners to do business
with us. The recent launch of PartnerXchange,
an online portal that enables our channel to effectively and efficiently
manage their 8×8-related business and drive sales of 8×8 solutions, is
just one example of our channel focus.”

Since 2014, the Channel Partners Circle of Excellence program has
recognized channel leaders who inspire their partners to drive digital
transformation for customers. The Circle of Excellence honors executives
for their vision, innovation and advocacy of the indirect channel during
a time of transition and convergence.

“Jeff Bezos famously said, ‘In business, what’s dangerous is to not
evolve,’” said Lorna Garey, editor in chief of Channel Partners and
Channel Futures. “The channel leaders we’re recognizing in this year’s
Circle of Excellence are providing not just the tools, but the spark and
inspiration that partners need to transform their own businesses so they
can better serve customers. The entire editorial team extends
congratulations and thanks for their service to our community.”

Channel Partners Circle of Excellence winners were honored during an
awards ceremony on April 11 at the Channel
Partners Conference & Expo
in Las Vegas. These winners will be
included on the Circle
of Excellence Immersion Center
on the Channel Partners website.
